Hi, I recently have 3 lights on the same circuit breaker started to flickers. I have changed out 3 light fixtures, a dimmer wall switch and multiple dimmable light bulbs in the room that flickers the most. I am getting very frustrated, any advice would be helpful. Thanks

These are the only 3 lights on the circuit breaker which consists of
1.) one dimmable ceiling light on dimmer switch
2.) one non-dimmable ceiling light on regular switch
3.) 6 dimmable recessed lights on dimmer switch.


The first one flickers the most, follow by the second then the 3rd. Works fine before, now it is getting worst. Thanks

I read all lights are dimmable as long as I use dimmable bulbs on light controlled by dimmer switch.
I have a ceiling light not on dimmer switch but on same circuit breaker that is flickering as well

Yes I have tried incandescent bulb and still flickers. I will check connection in the breaker box and tighten it if loose, if it still doesn’t fix the problem then I will replace the breaker. Funny how the breaker hasn’t tripped. Thanks

Don't forget to check the neutral as well as the hot wire going back to the breaker. I've found more loose neutrals on the bar than loose hots on breaker.



The breaker will only trip if the current heats up an internal mechanisms. If the internal mechanism that is the "switch" part is worn out, the connection won't be steady.
